O SLEEP is an improvised opera inspired by the drama, science and mystery of sleep and dream life. Composer/performer Theresa Wong (cello, voice) leads this exploration of our sleeping minds for Southern Exposure in collaboration with Michael Carter (electronics), Luciano Chessa (dan bau), Shayna Dunkleman (percussion), Ellen Fullman (Long String Instrument), Dohee Lee (percussion, voice), Heike Liss (video) and Alice Wu (costumes). This multi-dimensional piece focuses on the synthesis of improvised and composed music, text, movement, video and the use of architectural and natural space in performance. The structures and concepts of performance in this opera incorporate the element of the unknown not to tell a story, but rather to cast a question about the story of our universal and daily dormant drama.
